Year of the Fire Monkey!

This is a poster I designed and illustrated for Ashfield Council's 2016 Lunar New Year festivities, through my work at Sweets Workshop.
The festivities celebrate, the ninth sign of the 12-year cycle and it is represented by a Monkey. In Chinese astrology, each year is associated with a Chinese zodiac animal sign and also one of the Five Elements, which makes 2016 a Fire Monkey.

I had a great time illustrating this cheeky golden Fire Monkey and  I used a traditional style and colour palate so it would be instantly recognisable as poster for Chinese New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year I hope you get to enjoy some festivities!!
